Journal Entry 1 by wingAzukiwing from Miami, Florida USA on Friday, January 28, 2011
I picked up this three volumes at the recent Miami library book sale.

I have to say while the artist is pretty good with his pen and the smooth-flowing, clean and powerful lines are expressful, the story itself doesn't have enough substance to keep the readers engaged. It feels like the story is circling around with nothing going forward. The titles of the episodes are quite clever, and I like the Korean culture tidbits thrown in (I didn't know that unlike Japanese, in Korea it is rude to pick up a bowl of rice. No wonder their rice bowls are so uncomfortable to pick up...), but that doesn't make up for what's lacking.

Taking out of K00kaburra's Manga Bookbox. I just wasn't sure I wanted this, but I read the first book's back cover and then the first few pages and realized I was halfway through the book already and loving it. LOL So I might as well take it and give it a proper read.

This was my favorite of the first 3 volumes, because I love the info about dinner table manners. And now Joel has decided to leave for sure. He's made up his mind. Absolutely. Until... the end. HOW COULD IT END THERE?! No fair!

This book will be released at the 2011 BookCrossing Convention.

I agree with KateKintail - you can't end it there!!! (Actually, from what I can tell from Amazon, there's at least three more volumes to the story...)

Sent to me by the wonderful FutureCat after I mentioned I enjoyed graphic novels.

Might have to look out for the rest of the series after I have finished these three volumes.

I would have much preferred to get the whole series!
